My class was self-regulating, so I took a little while with one of the T.A.s to show her she could draw, too. She was adamant that she could not. I took her step-by-step through how to draw, first, an elephant and, second, a turtle. She did an admirable job. Others stood nearby and watched as she copied my movements and instructions. I enjoy seeing them see what they can do if they try.
I spoke to the agency today. I am not sure they have the same sense of urgency that we do. I get the feeling they don't really mind if we wait another couple months to go get Chloe. That makes me unhappy. When I am unhappy, it is harder for me to keep a civil tongue. I did well keeping my tongue today...but maybe I won't next time...I really do hate those people sometimes.
